The top five most miserable sports cities
No. 5: San Diego
Teams: Chargers, Padres, Rockets, Clippers
Championship Round Record: 1-6
Semi-Final Round Record: 3-3
Total Seasons/Championships: 107/1
Last Title: 1963
Chargers lost their only Super Bowl (1995), the Padres their only two World Series (1984 and 1998). Meantime, two professional basketball franchises have come and gone.
No. 4: Buffalo
Teams: Bills, Sabres, Braves
Championship Round Record: 2-6
Semi-Final Round Record: 6-6
Total Seasons/Championships: 103/2
Last Title: 1965
We all know the Bills are 0-4 in Super Bowls. But don’t forget the Sabres, who have competed in 29 Stanley Cup playoffs, including six semifinals, without a Cup.
No. 3: Phoenix
Teams: Cardinals, Suns, Diamondbacks, Coyotes
Championship Round Record: 1-3
Semi-Final Round Record: 4-9
Total Seasons/Championships: 101/1
Last Title: 2001
The Suns have reached the NBA western conference finals nine times without a championship.
No. 2: Atlanta
Teams: Falcons, Braves, Hawks, Flames, Thrashers
Championship Round Record: 1-5
Semi-Final Round Record: 6-10
Total Seasons/Championships: 159/1
Last Title: 1995
Oh, those Braves. Always near the top of the standings, but only hoisting the World Series trophy once at the end during a run of 14 straight division titles from 1991 to 2005. Meantime, the city’s two NHL franchises now play where people care about hockey, in Calgary and Winnipeg.
No. 1: Seattle
Teams (past and present): Seahawks, Mariners, Pilots, Sonics
Championship Round Record: 1-3
Semi-Final Round Record: 4-7
Total Seasons/Championships: 115/1
Last Title: 1979
Let us count the ways to misery: the Sonics are now one of the NBA’s elite teams – in Oklahoma City. A push to get basketball back via Sacramento didn’t make it. The 116-win Mariners of 2001 couldn’t finish the job. And a controversial call in the 2005 Super Bowl helped ensure a Seahawks loss to Pittsburgh.

i would like to give cleveland an honorable ,er, dishonerable mention.
since the superbowl era, they have not won a championship.
NFL - Browns 0 Super Bowl appearances. there is only 1 other non-recent expansion team to not have a suber bowl appearance. The Ravens then won 2 Super Bowls after leaving Cleveland.
MLB - Indians haven't won the World Series since 1948
NBA - Cavaliers have 0 Championships. Lebron won 2 after he left Cleveland
NHL - Barons played 2 seasons before merging with the North Stars. Finally won a Stanley Cup when the Stars moved to Dallas. This is the last team to cease operations in the 4 major american sports leagues.

LOL@Cleveland sports teams hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Yeah the Indians, Browns, Cavs are pitiful. I don't think they'll ever win a championship. Lebron got the Cavs to the finals in 2007 but that'll never happen again LOL. Washington DC also has to be the most miserable city because the Redskins and Wizards haven't won championships in years. Redskins last championship was in the 90's. Wizards won a championship when they were the Bullets in the 70's. I guess you can put Baltimore with Washington DC since Baltimore is only a hour or two from Washington DC. Baltimore Orioles have never won a championship i think.
